Pocket Unemployment Map of the United States by gungn1r Dec 4, 2012

Description

For my long paper in my computational economics class I decided to do economic data visualization using my 3d printer. I took an unemployment map of the US by county in 2009 and turned it into a 3d object with the unemployment level displayed by relative height. It also functions as an accurate pocket map of the US.

Haha, maybe that will happen due to automated manufacturing replacing manufacturing jobs
The way this administration is going, y'might run out of filament for the next report.

Instructions

Printed with 40% infill. PLA/ABS works. The STL scales decently so feel free to print in any dimensions, I would suggest calibrating your E-retraction length because it will have strands if it isn't perfect.

It would be really cool if someone else printed this before I turn in my paper on Friday, I would totally put that in the paper!
